[ARCHIVED] Maricopa County Opens Joint Information Center to Respond to COVID-19 Inquiries


Phoenix - With the official declaration of a local emergency in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic, Maricopa County set into a motion a series of operational changes including the opening of a Joint Information Center (JIC).  The JIC is being run by the Office of Communications, in partnership with the Department of Public Health and Department of Emergency Management.  The goal is to centralize communication efforts to better share public health guidance and respond to requests for information about the pandemic.  Public information officers and communication specialists from several county agencies are involved, many of them working remotely.

All media requests related to COVID-19 should be directed to the Joint Information Center using the following email address:  These requests will be sent to the assigned JIC public information officer for follow-up and response.

For community partners and members of the public, we have a COVID19 Communications Toolkit.  There are multi-language flyers, FAQs related to the virus, and downloadable graphics designed to share on social media.

Members of the public wishing to get the latest information on the county response to COVID-19 are encouraged to visit follow Maricopa County and Maricopa County Public Heath on social media.  There are updates available in both English and Spanish.
